Way back in the last century, I was a young captain fresh into an assignment teaching political science at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. It was a great assignment to be sure – smart students, wonderful colleagues, and a few perks. Among these perks was the opportunity to attend a conference every year that would enhance one’s intellectual development and skills as a teacher. Which is how I found myself in D.C., at the annual meeting of the Federalist Society.

While his vote may be in the minority regarding Neil Gorsuch's confirmation as a U.S. Supreme Court justice, U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet's position and intent toward the process and Gorsuch himself have fueled political speculation and concerns over consequences. Gorsuch, a Colorado native and Denver-based federal appeals court judge, was nominated by President Donald Trump to fill the seat vacated a year ago by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Gorsuch, the son of the late Anne Gorsuch who was EPA chief under Ronald Reagan, would be the second Coloradan on the Supreme Court. Byron “Whizzer” White retired in 1993.
